Eric Callahan is a powerful man, and his sharp business sense has earned him the nickname ‘the shark.’ Yet under the strict façade is a man who loves his daughter and would do anything for her. When he and his daughter move to San Francisco for three months, he has one thing in mind: expanding his business on the West Coast. As a widower, Eric is not looking for love. He focuses on his company, and his daughter.
Until he meets Pippa Bennett. She captivates him from the moment he sets eyes on her, and what starts as unintentional flirting soon spirals into something neither of them can control.
Pippa Bennett knows she should stay away from Eric Callahan. After going through a rough divorce, she doesn’t trust men anymore. But something about Eric just draws her in. He has a body made for sin and a sense of humor that matches hers. Not to mention that seeing how adorable he is with his daughter melts Pippa’s walls one by one.
The chemistry between them is undeniable, but the connection that grows deeper every day that has both of them wondering if love might be within their reach.
When it’s time for Eric and his daughter to head back home, will he give up on the woman who has captured his heart, or will he do everything in his power to remain by her side?
“…but she’s gotten under my skin, and I like how it feels.”
“Then stop looking for excuses and start finding solutions.”
It seems that the series is going in order as far as family members go; after all there are a lot of them to get through. Your Forever Love follows Pippa Bennett and Eric Callahan. This is the first in the series to follow a female Bennett, so it was interesting to see inside the Bennett family from a female perspective.
I remember saying in my past reviews for this series that I wish there was more drama, more heartache for characters, and this book delivered. It still wasn’t the worst scenario that I have ever read this normally the characters have a minor hiccup and then get back together. In this book, Hagen gives us the feels train. I know for me, my heart was literally hurting reading certain parts of the story; which, as bad as it sounds, is always a good thing. I think this is the first book in the series to actually make my heart hurt and, in my mind, that means it was the best so far.
I love that Pippa has an addiction to sugar and sweets and I love that Eric takes the time to really figure her out. Pippa is always used to being the listener in her family, always analyzing and reading her siblings but Eric comes into her life and gives her a taste of her own medicine. I think it’s really sweet that he figured out what she wanted and tried his best to give it to her. It makes us all want a relationship like Eric and Pippa.
Throughout the series, we get to see more and more of the Bennett siblings and are constantly introduced to new characters. This makes us, as readers, wonder who is going to star in the next book in the series and I can’t wait to see how Hagen continues to tie everyone together. I loved this book and can’t wait to see what’s in store in the next one!
